Although I've been away from blog land during October I have been keeping myself occupied! The last couple of weeks have been poppied away - I made some remembrance poppies for a craft fair a week ago using Mary T's excellent pattern here, sold them all and then had lots of orders through my facebook page and from family and friends. I'm delighted with the response and so far have raised £58 for the appeal! :)
As always I couldn't resist presenting them on my favourite button cards and I added a die cut felt leaf. Did you know the leaf should be positioned in the 11 o'clock position to represent 11.00 am on the 11th day of the 11th month? I'll be seeing poppies in my sleep soon - I'm even taking the opportunity to crochet them whilst visiting my Mum in hospital and I've sold some to the nursing staff too! Mum's been there for three weeks now but hopefully will be discharged soon as she is doing well.
